That said, there is a certain satisfaction in running larps. We make our deadlines because on the day the game is scheduled to run, it runs. We cut what corners we have to. It runs.
We didn't have to cut big corners. I didn't stress (except for about 20 minutes before the minivan arrived, at which point, things were running smoothly) and did my part to do project management, including doing things like saying, "Okay, take Monday evening for yourself."
The old larp is almost down to a science, and it boxed smoothly. The new larp involved staying up way too late the night before, which we do every time, but no big things up in the air.
And we're on the road. My old boss urges me to turn this into a paying gig. I'm not sure how, but it's a good idea. I feel all project manager-y, with a decent overview of both games and a certain amount of acceptable ignorance of specific areas which someone else understands inside and out.
The minivan is delightfully comfortable, and I have taken dramamine.
